America (You Say "A Change Is Gonna Come")
The Black Godfather
Can't Find My Mind
The Dealer, The Peeler And The Stealer
Dictionary People
Don't Take It
Fire In The Hole
Freak Blues
Hey Baby!
Hit Squad
I Gotta Get Shorty Out of Jail
I Hate Cha
I'll Do Most Anything For Your Love
I Thank God
I Wanna Go Back To Mexico
Me and My Dog
Mississippi & Joliet
Montana Slim
Nasty Women
One-Eyed Jack
The Seventy Year Old
Shake A Tail Feather
Sling That Thing
That's My Desire
Whatcha Gonna Do
Whip The Booty
You Got It And I Want It
Your Old Lady

You know what?
Living in America
Ain’t no fun
You better have some money or you got to be on the run

Ain’t this a god damn shame?
‘Cause without cash, you trash
You gotta be blessed
To live in America

The mens are dogs
The women are hogs
But that ain’t a bad thing
It’s better than living in Africa

You got to have some education
[You say “a change is gonna come”]
You got to know about your demonstration
[You say “a change is gonna come”]
Living in America
No damn fools live in America

Unless you wanna go to the penitentiary
I’ve seen everything that shouildn’t have been happening here
You better be ready
[You say “a change is gonna come”]
And steady
[You say “a change is gonna come”]
What you gonna do?
[You say “a change is gonna come”]

You know what?
I’ve been here for 47 years
And it ain’t been no fun
But where else can I run?

Look out for yourself my bother
[You say “a change is gonna come”]
I got nothing against Africa, buddy
[You say “a change is gonna come”]
If I had to choose it would be America
You heard what I say
It would be America
